DA wants ‘shadow planes’ investigation
28 January 2012
The Democratic Alliance requests that defence Minister Lindiwe Sisulu to appear before parliament to explain why huge amounts of money was spent on hiring shadow planes for President Jacob Zuma.
It emerged last week that a bombardier global express and an airbus A340 were used to shadow the president's business jet to the United States.
DA shadow minister,David Maynier,wrote a letter to the committee’s chairperson Jerome Maake.
In the letter he was requesting a special hearing following the mess at the South African Air Forces' 21 squadron.
